100 plants to Feed the Bees
Not Oregon specific, but a great starter guide and the native range of each plant is shown as a map.
Native Plants for Willamette Valley yards
An excellent resource for our local area. The plants are arranged by size, from large trees to small shade friendly ground cover. It's a free publication that can be downloaded here.
Plants for Pollinators in Oregon
This is a very thorough publication with a lot of Oregon specific information. One of many nice things they've included is a list of the beneficial insects each plant attracts. It's a free publication that can be downloaded here.
While not specific to planting for bees, this is my favorite Permaculture book and covers principles that can and should be applied to any gardening adventure.
The Meadowscaping Handbook
This handbook is a fantastic resource written specifically to help gardeners, landscape professionals and ecologists in the Willamette Valley design and plant communities of native prairie plants in urban garden settings.
